91. Post-It Art

:classy ass quadrilaterals:

There are very few media that focus on the rectangle. Sure, people go with a rectangular canvas or a broad square of paper, but those are often matters of convenience rather than deliberate choices on the part of the artist. Michelangelo purposely transformed rectangular blocks into various non-linear shapes. Pointillism is all about the dot, which tends to be round. Impressionism relies on the dab, a fundamentally elliptical trend. However, I was lucky enough to come across Post-It Art, a form of expression dedicated to a rectangular medium.

:post it bedroom:

While oil paints can run an artist up to $40 a pop, packages of Post-Its can cost less than ten dollars for ten or even twenty pads. Only a rectangle could be so universal. This medium is for the people, friends. Post-It art is accessible to anyone with a drugstore or stationer’s within walking distance.


I’d love to see my readers branch out into Postcard Art or Birthday Card Art. What can you come up with?
